Best Diners Drive ins and Dives Detroit Michigan with Guy Fieri and Food Network | By Sherry Trautman | Traveling Michigan

Grab a map of Guy Fieri's favorite eats in Detroit, Clarkston, Ferndale. Let's make a trip through Flavortown!

If you are as obsessed with Food Network, Diners Drive Ins and Dives, and Guy Fieri as we are, you have a fork in hand, ready to go!

We have probably watched every episode of Diners Drive Ins and Dives ever made.  (Yeah that sounds a little stalkery, but I prefer to think of us as SUPER FANS!)


We decided it was time to start following in Guy Fieri's footsteps and check these places out, starting in Detroit. 

We couldn't find an interactive map of just Michigan's episodes so we researched and pulled together this handy dandy interactive map...just for you (you're welcome!).

Diners Drive Ins and Dives Detroit: Kid Rock's Tour with Guy Fieri


Here's the Crazy Thing...

Detroit Michigan went nuts when Guy Fieri and Kid Rock (Detroit native) toured the city for great food. 

Visit Food Network to see how to make the dishes seen on Diners Drive Ins and Dives Detroit and watch full episodes of Guy Fieri and Kid Rock as they visit Detroit. 



“That [deep fryer] looks like the community pool in Flavourtown."

~Guy Fieri

(It sounds like a nice place to vacation, wonder if they rent condos on VRBO?)


Union Woodshop

Address: 18 S Main St, Clarkston, MI 48346 

  • Season 13, Episode 3


Union Woodshop is known across the land for their awesome barbecue- even Kid Rock loves it!

Try The Porker, made with house-ground pork, housemade Michigan maple bacon and housemade hotlinks. This dish really rocked Guy Fieri's world when he visited.  Sandwiches not your thing? Try their pizza and whiskey bar!

“If it tastes really good and it’s funky, it’s funkalicious.” ― Guy Fieri

-an except from the dictionary in the Flavourtown library

(We just nabbed a copy-we needed to be down with the lingo, baby!)


The Fly Trap

Address: 22950 Woodward Ave, Ferndale, MI 48220

In this episode, Guy Fieri had a thing for the Pho Bowls, so you gotta try one!

  • Season 2, Episode 11

Special Dishes: Vietnamese Pho Bowls, Thai-Style Peanut Chicken, Homemade Salmon Burger, Gingerbread Waffles

Awesome Diners Drive Ins and Dives Detroit spot!


Polish Village Cafe

Address: 2990 Yemans Ave, Hamtramck, MI 48212

  • Season 12, Episode 13

The Hungarian pancakes are fried and topped with a goulash made with pork butt. Guy loved the crunch from the pancakes and the "megatender" meat. Feeling fiesty?  Try the dill pickle soup!!


Supino Pizzaria

Address: 2457 Russell St, Detroit, MI 48207

  • Season 12, Episode 12

The City Wing Thing pizza (topped with piles of smoked turkey, cherry peppers, smoked Gouda, mozzarella and roasted garlic) came out a winner in Guy's book.

Grab a margarita pizza with a glass of wine for one heck of a meal at this Michigan Diners Drive Ins and Dives!

Clarkston Union Bar and Kitchen

Address: 54 S Main St, Village of Clarkston, MI 48346

  • Season 0, Episode 13

This was the episode where Guy Fieri visited the restaurant with Kid Rock

Owner, Curt Catallo, transformed an old church into a comfort food diner that is now known as THE SPOT for mac and cheese. 

Kid Rock and Guy Fieri dug into a bowl of creamy mac and cheese, calling it the "most macked mac & cheese."

It's also a great spot to grab a cold beer.

Traffic Jam and Snug

Address: 511 W Canfield St, Detroit, MI 48201

  • Season 13, Episode 1

The cool thing about Traffic Jam and Snug is their dedication to making everything fresh and in house.  It's a dream restaurant!  Their menu changes seasonally to reflect the seasonal best from local farms and markets. They have a ton of vegetarian, vegan, fish, meat and poultry options. Plus some great desserts!

What did Guy eat? The hot-sauce jelly beans in the pork loin kamatsu salad! Locals also enjoy the huge braised-beef panini sandwich made with their fresh baked bread.
